Ohio Northern University to present ‘Romeo and Juliet’
Ohio Northern University’s Freed Center for the Performing Arts will present “Romeo and Juliet” by National Players in the Stambaugh Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 7:30 p.m.
This production of “Romeo and Juliet” is National Players at its best: fresh, contemporary and visceral. This rendering of star-crossed lovers is set to the pulsing rhythms of contemporary digital society, where everything is shared and nothing connects, and takes the play back to its source while bringing it viciously into the here and now.
National Players, founded in 1949, offers an exemplary lesson in collaboration and teamwork in action; the actors not only play multiple roles onstage, but also serve as managers, teaching artists and technicians. A self-contained company, National Players carries its own sets, lights, costumes and sound.
Tickets are $25 for general admission, $10 for children, and $7 for ONU students. The Freed Center box office is open Monday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Phone orders are accepted with American Express, MasterCard, VISA or Discover by calling 419-772-1900.
